Blog Writer’s Block: Post Ideas for All Niches

I have a notebook where I write down any and all blog ideas, whether they are a scattered mess that I’ll never use or posts that I’m determined to create. Even if it’s not something I could create a post from, writing down those ideas still helps. It’s all about drawing inspiration.

It’s easy to go go go, but then, all of a sudden you feel like you’re out of blog steam. Writer’s block is never fun, and it always makes me feel guilty even when I know it shouldn’t. It’s okay to not have your mind constantly swirling with ideas. So, when you feel like you have no clue what you’re going to write next, get a notebook and write down anything and everything. Good or bad, writing can help spin your wheels.

If that still isn’t helping you plan out some posts, hop on Pinterest or a search engine and look up “post ideas for” and look up your niche. You’d be amazed by the wonderful ideas that people and the blogging community want to share. That’s what I’m doing today. I want to share some post ideas for a few different niches.

I have drawn inspiration from my notebooks and posts like this. You don’t have to use an idea completely as it is. Just reading these can inspire other ideas that may peak your interest. For me, I can find a way to spin many of these to fit what I write about, because blogging is creative. To be a blogger, you should trust your creative instincts. I believe in you, and if you’re in a writer’s block stuck period, you’ll come through it better than ever.

Lifestyle Bloggers

Lifestyle is a lovely umbrella blog niche that can include a variety of topics. Lifestyle bloggers also tend to include their personal experiences and hobbies when they are writing as well. I want to share a list of blog post topics that could pretty much all be included on a lifestyle blog.

From food to fashion, there’s a lot of options to write about as a lifestyle blogger, but having those options doesn’t stop writer’s block from cutting off that creative flow. Not all lifestyle bloggers cover every topic either, some pick two or three and focus on those. I want to not only share ideas that fit into the lifestyle niche but some others as well.

Options Galore

I think I could keep going, but that’s a good start for now. I didn’t include travel or DIY, because I’m not well versed in either. I do love reading blogs of all topics though. I also try to push myself and write outside of my box when I’m feeling stuck.

The topics I write about are all laced with personal experiences and stories. I cover parenting, beauty, mental health, relationships and sex, and body positivity. I write about my journey with all of those. I don’t do many beauty tips, but I share product favorites and discuss my routine and love of all things beauty. I also discuss my disability and that I’m legally blind. Blogging for me isn’t just my career; it’s personal.

While many of these ideas are basic and great for starting out, there’s a way to embed a personal touch to fit your style and voice wherever you are in your blogging journey. I’m not saying you have to use these verbatim when writer’s block hits, but they can help draw inspiration.

Being a blogger already showcases your creative abilities. Don’t be hard on yourself for feeling like you’re out of ideas. Give it a minute and breathe. You can do this, and I’m always here for help.

Have a beautiful weekend!

-With Love, Jenni
